Excellent work! Question: Why did you use 1/4 sew foam and not 1/2 inch?

hiya buddy , the centre panel with the diamonds on is 12 1/2 " wide by 17 1/2" long , the seat back i estimate to be around 17" wide by 24" long.
update on the porsche 944 seats im doing. boy what a pita these are to recover , the original covering was a brown plastic that was imprinted to look like vinyl , horrible nasty stuff . to allow a new cover to be fitted ive had to use a little artistic licence , ive created a three peice back with hidden zips , this allows the front cover to be hogringed on .

ive followed the stitch lines in the front of the seat onto the back of the seat.
the passenger seats almost finished , just to smooth the cover out and `set` the piping in place .

.
take it easy guys , ade :ILU:T:

..............So if there are 6 diamonds at 3" top to bottom, and 6 diamonds at 2" side to side, the piece is 12" (and a half inch) wide, and 18" tall, which was my point.

Great job on the seats, I have a question about the profile on the bottom.

Did you hog ring under the front seat base? Where the diamond meets the front seat panel. I am trying to figure out how you get those profiles!
